NRS Rendevous - Dec 1-3, 2023


This gathering of people was born on the backs of our fantastic Longhunter Rendevous of 2020.  We had a such a great time, we thought we would make it an annual event. 

In this particular winter rendezvous we have a friendly competition to work on your skills and to find which ones you need to work on.  This year we are giving away a Shemanese Flat Grind built with A2 steel as the prize for whoever scores the highest on the competition.  THere are numerous other prizes that will be awarded as well.  

There will be break out workshops, classes and discussions on topics related to the outdoors that may include:

  • Survival methodology
  • Land Navigation
  • Tracking
  • Nature Immersion
  • Wildlife Habitat Improvement
  • Hiking
  • Backpacking

There will be plenty of time to look at some old-school and modern gear.  

The highlight of this event is a trade blanket.  Bring stuff you make, or stuff you no longer want and trade it for something that meets your needs better.   Yes, cash is always an acceptable trade.
